Cody mentioned that the "Warrior Prayer" totally changed the way he prays. Here are the steps:
1. Tattle-tale on satan - tell God what is happening in your life and in your brain. What feelings are you having and what thoughts are you having?
2. Expose the adversary and share with God the tactics that are being used against you. Counsel with God and explain what is going on and what the enemy is doing to stop you
3. "The brother of Jared step" - Present your plan
4. Ask Heavenly Father for energy and remembrance to follow through with the plan.
Listen to his presentation for more information and how this applies to YOU.

In week 4 of our Parent Training podcast, we learn that each choice we make is actually a test of our agency. What will we choose? Liberty or captivity? Why is it important for our sons to be reminded every week what they are fighting for and who they are? Do we remember what we are fighting for? Karen shares a personal story on how overcoming a mood battle helped her to remember how much she loved her family and why they are worth fighting for. In her easy going style she describes how she came to this realization while working through a pile of dirty dishes. Karen continues to teach us important strategies that our sons are learning in Sons of Helaman, but even more importantly she reminds us that the best way to truly help our sons is by strengthening our own personal relationship with the Savior and understanding who our kids truly are--amazing sons and daughters of God who the adversary fears. For more information on our programs and mother's support, please visit our website at https://motherswhoknow.org or for information about Eternal Warriors: www.eternalwarriorstraining.org

She also explains what a Man Power calendar is and she shares stories from young men who have found success in all aspects of their lives by incorporating the calendar into their daily routine. The Man Power calendar is a tracking system for accomplishing goals. What makes the Man Power calendar unique is that it utilizes both faith (spiritual) goals with works (physical) goals.

Why does my son keep losing battles? My son and I are really having some great conversations and the spirit is so strong. I just know that he is going to beat this, but then he loses a battle. Is this my fault? It seems that my son is always starting over. Sometimes it makes me so angry. Karen reminds us that our child is not broken or unworthy. The adversary is attacking him with psychological warfare and everything he has. What we need to realize is that the adversary is also attacking YOU with the same psychological warfare. He wants you to become agitated and upset so that you react with anger and fear. In week 2 of our Parent Training podcast series, Karen teaches how important it is to put on the armor of God each and every day, do your own drills, and better understand the battles we all face.
This is Part 1 of a 4-part series on Sons of Helaman training for parents. Is there anything I need to know to help my son be successful in the Sons of Helaman program? YES!!! In this podcast Karen teaches us the same tools that your child is being taught in Sons of Helaman. Understanding what your child is being taught is key to supporting him on his journey to recovery. In this first lesson, Karen reminds us that the adversary is working at lightning speed to destroy families. He is an expert at being subtle and personal because he wants us to be miserable. He fills our minds with fear until we feel beaten down and then he sits back and laughs. Karen teaches us how to discern between Satan’s lies and God’s truths, so that we will come to recognize the Savior’s hand in not only our son’s journey but in our journey as well. For more information on the Sons of Helaman program, visit www.sonsofhelaman.org or www.motherswhoknow.org
In this mini-podcast, listen as Maurice Harker, CMHC, answers a mother's questions about thoughts. She mentions the idea that is taught at Life Changing Services that "not every voice in my head is a trusted voice". She asks if the adversary can get in our heads and create negative thoughts or temptations, then do we ever actually have our "own" thoughts? How can we tell what is our own thought, what is from the Spirit, what is true, and what is a false idea from the adversary? What kind of tools can we use to figure that out. To join us in our free weekly support group for mothers, called Warrior Mothers Who Know, you can find the link and information on our website. https://motherswhoknow.org/warrior-mothers-support-group/ All moms are welcome.

Karen talks about all the things a mother knows. We are all in a battle against the adversary, we are at war, and this life will not be without wounds. But, WOUNDS DO NOT MEAN FAILURE! In the Book of Mormon, the Sons of Helaman found battles, and all were wounded, but none perished. Our children will have wounds in this life of some kind, we as moms will have wounds, but that does not mean we won't win the war. The outcome has already been decided--with the Savior, we will win, everytime! Join Karen as she teaches with the Spirit about some of the things we as mothers know. She also invites you join her in an 8-week webinar training called Mom Power www.mompowertraining.com.

This is a special clip from Karen's Mom Power class, an 8-week series teaching moms to strengthen themselves, fortify their families, fight the adversary and receive personal revelation. In this short message, Karen shares a personal experience about receiving revelation, about asking God "Why us?" and "Why is this happening to us?". She talks about how God answered her prayers--not in the way she thought at all and how she finally learned that the only person she could change was herself. The next Mom Power series begins August 27th, to register go to www.mompowertraining.com
This is the audio from one of Karen's Eternal Warriors classes--protecting our families from the evils of pornography. However, this is probably not the training you think it's going to be. In this training, Karen teaches parents that the most important thing they need to know, and their kids need to know, is WHO THEY ARE--divine sons and daughters of God. We need to teach them that our homes and hearts are "a place of grace" and that its okay to make mistakes or even feel like you have failed--that is what the Atonement is for. Mothers can have such a huge influence on their children and how that handle situations. This is a powerful lesson.

You are in for a treat today as you listen to our dear Momma Verla share her wisdom and her wit. Momma Verla shares a touching story about a young man who, after years of struggling with addictions and spending time in jail, is finally able to turn his life around. He attributes his success to the influence of his sweet mother who never gave up on him. As I listened to this podcast, I am reminded of this beautiful quote by Marvin J. Ashton: “What is meant by the statement, ‘No success can compensate for failure in the home?’” Knowing a little of the burdens this friend of mine carries in her mind and heart because of a rebellious, wayward daughter, I shared this meaning with her: I believe we start to fail in the home when we give up on each other. We have not failed until we have quit trying. As long as we are working diligently with love, patience, and long-suffering, despite the odds or the apparent lack of progress, we are not classified as failures in the home. We only start to fail when we give up on a son, daughter, mother, or father.”
Momma Verla reminds us that the influence of a mother is a precious gift and even though we may not realize it at the moment, our efforts will have a lasting impact in the lives of our children. For more information on Mothers Who Know, visit our website at https://motherswhoknow.org/

In this episode of the Like Dragons Did They Fight series, Karen Broadhead interviews Warrior Mom Diane. Diane opens up about her struggles with her teenage daughter. When Diane learned that her daughter doubted her own self-worth, thought about suicide and using drugs to dull the pain she was feeling, Diane confronted her in an attempt to help. Unfortunately, this initially backfired and Diane felt like their home became a "war zone". She felt she was operating out of fear. When she learned to rely on the Holy Ghost, Diane could help herself and find ways to mend things with her daughter and help her. Diane's message to moms is that "there is really hope" and "I am resilient." Listen to Diane's story of hope.

Karen Broadhead, founder and director of Mothers Who Know and Mom Power Training, teaches about the importance of receiving personal revelation in our lives. We all know its important, and would love to receive it, but often have no idea exactly how. In this episode, Karen talks about how she learned to receive revelation using different colored pens while "Writing Letters to God" and writing in her journal. She uses these various colors of pens to gather "evidence" that God does love her and does in fact talk to her. She teaches that while she may not get "awe inspiring" answers everyday, she can look over her past journals and easily see where God was in fact talking to her. She now has evidence that God is in her life, is beside her every step of the way, and speaks to her in small ways. PoWeR journaling includes Prayer, Writing and Reading.
